My son and I presented Yeronga State School with the finished bottle top & resin artwork today during the Senior Academic Awards Ceremony. I created this with students of grade 2 & 4, although across all grades, families collected & donated their bottle tops. Everybody helped. It’s going to pretty up the school hall, and remind our community of the value in these disposable, single use plastics. As bright & cute as these are, I wish we didn’t buy so many single use plastic items and throw them away. I wish we could develop better systems of food distribution and clever re use of these plastics. Once made, they are with us on earth for ever and sadly clogging up the oceans, waterways and polluting our ecosystems. Let’s not get started on landfill & native animals....Sigh... Anyhow! A cool artwork for my favourite school, and free art experience for the students. Go Yeronga!! #loveschool#support#volunteering#mummying#stateschoolsaregreatschools#arteducator#arteducation#art#onedaytheymightpayme#haha#arttherapy#artteacher#artteachersofinstagram
Do you remember a time when you were driving or walking along the street and everyone smiled and waved to you? Or if you waved to someone you don’t know and smiled and waved and yelled HEEEEY!!! I used to say hi to EVERY. SINGLE. PERSON I’d come encounter with on my runs (and I’m a runner). And I’d say hi to people in the store or on an airplane. But then I stopped. Maybe I stopped because no one waved hi back? Maybe I stopped because I “had too much to do and I didn’t have time for that?” When did I start caring more about myself then about my brothers and sisters? -
Let me tell you, that is NOT the case in Uganda. We are the whitest of people walking or driving around. People don’t necessarily know we’re the “medical volunteers”. And most people walking along the road or standing by their huts will wave and smile without hesitation. Some will stare with a look of concern. But no joke - as soon as you raise your hand to wave they beam ear to ear and wave back!! -
I encourage everyone to start to do this as well! What better way to start now in this holiday season? But to carry it on with you this new year. At first it seems weird and uncomfortable because we tend to want to “stay in our own lanes” so to speak. But once you let yourself be vulnerable it makes your heart smile. Which makes your face smile ... trust me - it’s happening to all of us!
⭐️Random Acts Of Kindness⭐️ .
In this weeks podcast episode @dan_withad and I talk about different types of RAOK including our experiences volunteering. I of course chose to help our at a Christmas tree lot where my wild eyes would fit in perfectly! .
I wasn’t sure if I should post this video, in reality it’s basically clips of a bunch of different Christmas trees. Then this morning I walked past the lot on my way to work and smelled the trees and suddenly the place was magical again, I remembered all the awesome people I’ve met there and the unique and personal stories they shared with me whilst I did my best to try and remember which flipping tree was which!
So before you watch maybe put your face in your Christmas tree of choice and inhale deeply, not a Norseman though as they don’t have a scent...oh look I HAVE learnt something!
For over 20 years Aunt Leah’s Christmas Tree Lots have been raising money to fund programs that help prevent children in foster care from becoming homeless, and young mothers from losing custody of their children. They are awesome!
Happy 🎄choosing, decorating and smelling!

To the unsung heroes that make this world wonderful...thank you! Thank you for the countless hours you gave up to be with your families or perhaps doing something for yourself. Thank you for helping those that can’t help themselves. Thank you for being the change and voicing it so that others may know. Thank you for doing it even when others complain about the event and they never even lifted a finger to help. It is a thankless job but the rewards are immeasurable to the naked eye. You do it, not for the ❤️ or 👍 on social media, but because you are making a difference in someone else’s life. You are passionate. You are kind. You are selfless. You are a dreamer and a doer. You are irreplaceable. Thank you thank you thank you, especially at this time of year!!! I wish I could send each and every one of you a beautiful bouquet from @farmgirlflowers #tiuholidayhustle#volunteer @toneitup
I love hearing about my friends and colleagues #volunteering for organizations that help children better themselves. Creative Planning advisors Andrew Fuller and Mike Nemzek volunteered with @juniorachievement_orangecounty to teach a class on #personalfinance to help children stay in school and gain financial literacy.
The sexual health rights of young people have been systematically targeted and stripped since the Trump/Pence administration took office. Although organizations like ours fight this federal tide every day, the past two years have shown a disturbing, regressive trend in eliminating policies that protect and support our youth.
Right now, we are running a crowdfunding campaign to bring the Sex Squad program to schools in Los Angeles next year. Will you join us in this fight by making a donation?
Go to the link in our bio to support our work. Every cent donated is a cent towards rights-based sex ed!
Meet Purifico, a 97-year old veteran who we were able to help in Puerto Rico. Purifico really values his independence which makes it all the more important for us to make sure his home is wheelchair accessible and hurricane resilient. To find out more about how you can help in Puerto Rico, visit the link in our bio.
Last night our Co-Founder Nima Nojoumi, his sister Farima Nojoumi, and our logistics operator Alex Alvarez volunteered at @fmsc_org. Together, they helped packing 14,472 meals for starving kids in the Philippines. For 2019, one of Sourcely’s goals is to spend more time into giving back for those who need the most! #insidesourcely#volunteering#feedmystarvingchildren
You may remember some of these faces from the spotlight stories we've been sharing over the last few months.
Did any of them inspire you to start volunteering? If you would like to join them in making a difference, we would love to hear from you!
Remember volunteering doesn't have to be boring, take a lot of time, or even be an indoors activity! There are heaps of options around Marlborough!

Today I had the opportunity to volunteer with @gordiehowesports. I did not realize the magnitude of this project-ball fields, new football field, Nordic skiing, track and field, speed skating oval, numerous buildings...well you get the drift, it’s a huge project. The #fundraising and #volunteering efforts to bring this to fruition is crazy! I’m grateful that @the_cooperators allows their employees time to go out into the community and #volunteer . I’ll be back next week to #giveback . As well, the skating oval is set to open this Saturday December 15. Go take a peak with what’s happening there. #giving#fotb#friendsofthebowl#volunteering#sport#community#yxe
💕Sorrisi ne abbiamo?💕
Non permettere mai che qualcuno venga a te e vada via senza essere migliore e più contento. Sii l'espressione della bontà di Dio, bontà sul tuo volto e nei tuoi occhi, bontà nel tuo sorriso e nel tuo saluto. Ai bambini, ai poveri e a tutti coloro che soffrono nella carne e nello spirito, offri sempre un sorriso gioioso. Da' a loro non solo le tue cure, ma anche il tuo cuore.
Because I Love my job! Was genuinely happy here and felt pretty for once! One of the residents told me I am the most beautiful and kind girl! And it made my day! Nothing makes me happier than helping people 😊💕💕💕#carehome#pmh#lovemyjob#nursing#volunteering
